Ansu turns the spotlight towards the grass

To modify the statutes, the one that promoted the eleven of Koeman, who returned to the competition defeating Valencia 3-1 after tracing an initial goal from Gayà and inaugurating a new era of illusion at the Camp Nou led by Ansu Fati, who returned to be the owner. Again, the team takes center stage on a day when the focus was on the assembly.

The barcelonismo lives to blow of defibrillator. It does not matter that the days are marathon for the militant fan, who sat down at three in the afternoon at the Palau Blaugrana (or on the sofa at home) to attend the “most important assembly in the history of the club” and then joined with the match against Valencia. More than eight hours of Scottish shower that only very coffee growers can take.

If the assembly started at the piggy trot and as things accelerated, the attendees already saw that they had time to solve everything on the task table and decided to put the brakes on, on the pitch of the Camp Nou there was no time to be enchanted.

Barça resumed the competition after two mediocre performances against Benfica and Atlético, parties that supported the theory of “this is what there is”, but the ‘peace of Lisbon’ generated another story, something that in this club is assumed with a generosity worthy of a Netflix series. That that you could not aspire to anything was changed into saying Jesus for “we aspire to everything” and that’s how Koeman’s guys came out, determined to improve their image of their latest performances.

For this task, the presence of Ansu Fati as holder was fundamental. With Ansu by the side, Memphis already has someone who understands him and he is no longer Warrior number 13, the Muslim elite soldier who for reasons of fate is involved in a Viking detachment without anyone understanding him.

At the first minute of play, Ansu already threatened Cillessen giving the image of an aggressive barça that was sustained by the pressure and intensity that he brings to Gavi, who started alongside Sergi Roberto and Eric. That Koeman takes note of Luis Enrique’s recipe with the Selection seems clear.

However, the Blaugrana team continues to have a crystal jaw. At Valencia’s first approach, Gayà hit a monumental shot after a rejection by the Blaugrana team on a corner kick that Ter Stegen did not deflect.

With the wind against, Barça found themselves in a difficult situation again, but unlike on other occasions, the presence of Gavi and Ansu gave the Barça fans more fang, who began to besiege Cillessen.

The Memphis-Ansu association bore fruit before the quarter hour with a great goal from the youth squad after the Dutchman left. On the back of the euphoria that each Ansu goal provokes, which emotionally is worth two in the Camp Nou stands, Barça played their best minutes and after a great combination in attack, Fati fell in the small area before the harassment of Gayà. For Gil Manzano it was a penalty and the punishment was executed by Memphis with a violence in the kick that left his compatriot Cillessen with the mold.

The start of the second half was from Valencia despite the first time being Ansu, who gives the feeling of playing without any restraint well above what the doctors would recommend. His shot was saved by Cillessen and from there Valencia dominated the game. Carlos Soler shot the post and Ter Stegen remembered the saving goalkeeper Guedes shot.

At game time, Koeman already withdrew Ansu, who had given everything, to give entry to Coutinho. At first glance it seemed something like going from atomic energy to the steam engine, but the classics always have aces up their sleeve and the Brazilian calmly culminated a frantic play by Dest that meant 3-1.

And with that result, the fan finished his Scottish shower by forgetting the assembly and focusing on the field.
